The Castle Vale conveyancing firm handling our Castle Vale conveyancing has spotted a difference between the surveyor’s assumptions in the valuation survey and what is revealed within the legal papers for the property. My solicitor says that he is duty bound to check that the bank is OK with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my conveyancer’s course or action right?
Your conveyancer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for both parties.
I own a freehold premises in Castle Vale but nevertheless charged rent, why is this and what is this?
It’s unusual for properties in Castle Vale and has limited impact for conveyancing in Castle Vale but some freehold properties in England (particularly common in North West England) pay an annual sum known as a Chief Rent or a Rentcharge to a third party who has no other legal interest in the land.
Rentcharge payments are usually between £2.00 and £5.00 per year. Rentcharges have existed for many centuries, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the generation of fresh rentcharges from 1977 onwards.
Previous rentcharges can now be extinguished by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence in 2037 will be dispensed with completely.
